Limited 150gm vinyl LP pressing. Hold Me Up is the third studio album by American rock band Goo Goo Dolls, released by Metal Blade Records in 1990. This is considered the band's true major-label debut, as previous albums were organized by the band themselves. It features their first single, "There You Are," which became their first music video as well. Some consider this album the Goo Goo Dolls' last true "garage rock" album. Also, this marks the beginning of John Rzeznik's emergence as the band's principal lead vocalist. The Goo Goo Dolls formed in 1986 in Buffalo, New York, by vocalist and guitarist John Rzeznik, vocalist and bassist Robby Takac. They have had 19 top ten singles on various charts, and have sold more than 12 million albums worldwide.
